    Korea will donate 101 dairy cows to Nepal, paying forward the generosity of the international community, whose donations of milk cows started its own dairy industry after the war.
    This is the first time Korea has donated cattle to a foreign country under an official development assistance program.
    The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs on Wednesday said it will airlift 101 milk cows, two Korean breeding bulls and bull semen to Nepal by year's end in cooperation with Heifer International, an international agency dedicated to donating cattle to poor countries.
    Korea received about 3,200 cattle including some 900 dairy cows from the international community from 1952 to 1976.
    "Korean dairy cows have top-class milk productivity thanks to improvement efforts by both the government and farmers over the past 40 years," said Agriculture Minister Chung Hwang-keun. "The project shows how Korea has grown from an aid recipient into a donor."
